Placeholder Image
WHITEWATER - Monroe Optimists clubs have lent a helping hand to an effort to bring an ambulance to Africa. Optimists at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater helped spearhead the effort to get a used ambulance to Brukina Faso, a poor country in Western Africa. UW-Whitewater associate chemistry professor Hassimi Traore is from Brukina Faso, and as a boy saw a friend die after he was injured in a traffic accident and there was no transportation available to get him to a hospital three hours away.
